Eight days after Reeva Steenkamp died in a hail of 9mm bullets, Oscar Pistorius got his bail. After a lengthy ruling from Magistrate Desmond Nair, beamed live around the world, the murder-accused athlete has been released from police holding cells to await a trial beginning on 4 June. While the granting of bail is a positive sign for the Pistorius camp, Nair's ruling made it clear that he didn't buy a number of aspects of Pistorius's account of the events which led to the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp.
